Commencing with a light-hearted ‘bottle’.

Commonly called a ‘bottle brush’

Callistemon are hardy plants.

I am going to guess this is

the Captain Cook Callistemon.

A random bottle of grape juice

About the only thin MGW and I have

ever won via a trivia quiz.

Sadly, we don’t imbibe, at all, and gave it away.

Still don’t know if it is a good vintage.

And this is to size of a

New Zealand bottle.

Today we were heading north from Whakatane

and the Ohope Beach / Opotiki region.

We came upon this hillside covered in

what we call Pampas Grass.

The bushy flowers do look attractive,

particularly with the sun behind them.

To the best of my memory pampas

is a noxious weed in Australia.

Somewhere near Paerora is the best

I can do for this image.

We were on our way to Matta Matta

and the Hobbiton Movie Set.
